Therapy for Black Girls

Jun 6, 2018

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a Licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible version of ourselves.

Unpacking the issues in our community related to skin color and hair texture can be difficult, but it's necessary. Today's episode features my conversation with Dr. Donna Oriowo, LICSW, M.Ed. Dr. Donna and I discussed the definitions of colorism and texturism, ideas about having more effective conversations about these issues, how these issues impact our mental health as Black women, and strategies for working through some of these concerns.
